I’ve used this garage sale flowerpot as a pencil holder in the office for a while now. I like that its prettier than most things that were made to be pencil holders.
So after the office remodel I wanted to add some other pretty touches to the office and I started with my paperclip holder, which was one of those plastic cubes with a magnet ring at the top. Very functional, but not very pretty.
So I swapped it out for this tiny white dish I picked up at a recent estate sale.
Turns out I don’t need something that was made to be a paperclip holder out all. (I also throw my chapstick in the bowl. Does anyone else have chapstick on their desk, in their purse, and on their nightstand? #addicted)
At another sale I found this sweet little blue and white Delft planter in the garage. (Never skip the garage at estate sales. You never know what you’ll find out there.)
I picked up a low-maintenance succulent at the hardware store to put inside.
I like having a little bit of green in as many rooms as my limited gardening skills will allow.
